Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2004-09-06 08:21:18 UTC
Jouston, I'm unable to reproduce the problem with jpilot-0.99.7 and
ctrl-space keyboard shortcut. Can it be invoked in some other way?


Comment 2 Jouston Huang 2004-09-06 09:50:56 UTC
Dear Jindrich,

May I ask a question:

Is "Unable to reproduce" means you can launch either xcin or
iiimf-le-xcin in Fedora Core 2?


Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2004-09-06 10:32:34 UTC
The problem is that ctrl-space keyboard shortcut in jpilot simply does
not work (does nothing) for me with jpilot-0.99.7 on FC2.

Comment 4 Jouston Huang 2004-09-07 04:50:27 UTC
Dear Jindrich,

In xcin or iiimf-le-xcin, the ctrl-space shortcut will "switch" input
method to foreground so that we can input characters into jpilot or
other applications.

If anything goes right(locale setting, input method...etc.), we can
switch input method in every applications. No matter it is openoffice
or jpilot.

In fact, while I report this bug, I can input Chinese in gedit and
rxvt. But cannot input Chinese in jpilot.

Best regards,

it works for me. I logged in Traditional Chinese locale with FC3 and I
simply trigged up xcin. If you are still having problems you might try
to use scim (at sourceforge.org) or perhaps try to upgrade your system.
Good luck.

Comment 6 Jouston Huang 2004-12-19 11:17:39 UTC

It's really a happy news for me! I report a bug in FC2 someone tell 
me try FC3. Somehow if every bug can be fixed in next version, this 
bugzilla is an unnessary existantce.

I don't have this problem now, because I am using hoary and xine 
backport. It works fine.
